Treyarch’s Game Design Director, David Vonderhaar, has tweeted about how he ‘f*cked up’ with the ‘Second Chance’ perk in Black Ops and how he and the team ‘meant well’.

‘Second Chance’ is a tier 3 multiplayer perk that allows players to survive lethal damage and use a pistol for 10 seconds while downed before dying, the Pro version allowing increased bleed out time (30 seconds) and the option for teammates to revive you.
The player is invulnerable when being shot into Second Chance but becomes vulnerable after the falling animation with only 1 hit-point and may be killed by anything that does damage, even flashbang blasts.

A following tweet also states that David is “really sorry about that challenge to cap flags for Pro perks. That was another bad idea. Long story. Filled with regret”.

Fucked up in second chance? did Treyarch really heard all those cry babies, all those noobs that always got owned by SC users? man they are weak, SC is just another perk, some people use it, some don't. I don't use it often, but I don't cry like babies (like most of the players) if I get killed by a SC dude in the floor, I just accept my death and continue on. that is some lame bullshit man, some crying from bitches. Noobs crying cause they couldn't reach the chopper gunner or dogs or gunship or black bird cause they got PWNED by a SC dude, that is embarrasing, that's why they cry like bitches. I hope they don't put SC out, its a cool perk and it helps your team when a newbie is staring to play and get use to it, it gives him a second chance, and not a point to the other team. All players gotta do is learn to play better, and stop bitching. That is a perk that came with the game, you are not a noob by using it, you are a noob by getting owned from someone in it.

At least Treyarch actually support their game. There were most likely more patches at the request of the COD community then IW has done in MW2 entire life cycle. Owning up to mistakes always says tons about the Vanderhaar and most likely the Treyarch devs. I can't wait for BLOPs 2 or whatever it will be called. Hopefully IW/Sledghammer games keep supporting MW3 as they have been. Currently there is a huge problem affecting only "some" users and private lobbies accepting more then 9 people. It's total BS and I am having a hell of a time getting the issue known to Robert Bowling and Guy Beahm BUT luckily I don't give up easily.

Who cares about that shit? Black ops is garbage, MW3 is garbage, the whole CoD serie is garbage, it is even beaten by pokemon. Stop caring about that lame shit like everybody did

well..
well..

hopefully they change it for THEIR CoD game, MW3 is alright, it's better than the unbalanced bullshit that was MW2 but I prefer Blacks Ops way more.
